Making its awaited return this 2023 is the month-long International Hispanic Theatre Festival (IHTF), held in Key Biscayne and other parts of Miami.

In a collaboration between Teatro Avante, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and Miami-Dade County Auditorium, the renowned IHTF of Miami will be celebrating its 36th season this summer.

Bringing acclaimed theatre groups from across Latin America, Spain, and the United States, the festival will definitely present a varied season for Miami audiences. It includes 7 productions from 6 countries: Argentina, Chile, Spain, United States, Puerto Rico, and Uruguay. Performances will be in Spanish, two with English subtitles and one bilingual.

Performances will be on Thursdays or Fridays through Sundays. The festival will open at Miami-Dade County Auditorium’s On.Stage Black Box Theatre on friday, July 8th at 8:30 p.m. with Are You There, Bette Davis? (Uruguay). Later, it will open at the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Carnival Studio Theater with Brief Encounters with Repulsive Men (Chile), on Friday, July 15, at 8:30 p.m.

Events will be held at various venues in Miami-Dade County, including the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Carnival Studio Theater and Miami-Dade County Auditorium’s On.Stage Black Box Theatre.

The festival will also hold events at the Key Biscayne Community Center, including the popular International Children’s Day celebration, on Saturday, July 16 at 5:00 p.m. The event will also be held at MDCA’s On.Stage Black Box Theatre, on Sunday, July 17, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The Festival will also feature an "Educational Component," with Beatriz J. Rizk, Ph.D directing forums immediately after each opening and theatre workshops.

Immediately before the opening performance of Mejor Me Callo at the Carnival Studio Theater on Thursday, July 28, the Festival will present Mexican award-winning actor Adriana Barraza with the Life Achievement in the Performing Awards Award.

The Festival poster was designed by Mexican artist, Adriana Torres, and the International Children’s Day poster was designed by Christoper Ricardo Romero, described as a “brave fighter from the Live Like Bella Childhood Cancer Foundation.”
